Harrison, born 1845, in Yorkshire, began his scientific education at the age of 23. By 1881 he persued a new interest in photography, and made significant contributions which broaden the applications of photography, ie., keeping a pictorial record of men, things, and events to have as historical documents. He urged many photographers to compile photographic surveys of local areas and he planned "Photographic Survey of Warwickshire" among others. He is best known for compiling the first comprehensive bibliography of photographic manuals in the English language, A History of Photography...(1887). Includes Harrison's complete bibliography. No. 12 of the History of Photography Monograph Series; limited to 200 copies.
